Hello, Hello from Busy Town!

IN OTHER NEWS:  I'm super excited to share my new relationship with Blossom Inspirations.  Blossom Inspirations works directly with independent artisans in Peru to create Fair Trade fashion accessories and beautiful recycled and/or handcrafted home goods.  I'll be teaming up with Blossom to design and release some new specialty items (see the Chicago Flag inspired hand-carved gourd up to the right of this paragraph?  That's just one of the many products that we'll be offering).

Have to get back to work now, stop by the shop though to see the new digs!
